2020 Legacy Journeys


Our trip to three of Hawaii’s eight main islands—Maui, Moloka‘i and Kaua‘i— reaches beyond beautiful sunsets and crystal clear waters to embrace a heritage of endemic plants and animals, rich Hawaiian culture and a dynamic landscape. After exploring Maui from ridge to reef, we’ll visit Moloka‘i’s Mo’omomi Preserve, where a windy, salt-sprayed environment support native Hawaiian species, including ‘ua’u kani (wedge-tailed shearwater) colony. Then head to Kaua‘i to discover its natural treasures, including Waimea Canyon, dubbed “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” 


  • Snorkel with TNC’s Maui marine program director.
  • Witness humpback whales that have migrated from Alaska to breed in the warm waters of the ‘Au‘au Channel.
  • Bring binoculars to the Waikamoi Preserve, a rainforest that harbors endemic native birds, including the critically endangered ākohekohe and kiwikiu, found only on Maui.
  • Watch red-footed boobies nest in trees and Laysan albatrosses gliding over the waves at Kīlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.
  • Hike along the Pihea Trail through the high-elevation forest of the Alaka‘i Swamp.


Dates: February 23 - March 2
